My Free Firmoo Sunglasses

Image
We have three days more to go before going back home in the Philippines. We've been here in the US for the past 4 months visiting our friends and loved ones and now we're just want to go home and continue doing the work of the Lord. Our ministry there need us. I was already packing our suitcases and I have to pack too my wrap around sunglasses which I received from Firmoo a few days ago. These wrap around sunglasses are so beautifully crafted for extreme charm and glamor. The frame is constructed of high qualified plastic, bold and durable. Their prices range from $40 to $44.90 each. The good thing is I got this for free so I can make a review about it in my blog.
I love my Firmoo wrap around sunglasses because they are light, fashionable and chic. I'm pretty sure we will be going to the beach when we go back home to my homeland because hubby just love going there. My Firmoo sunglasses would be of great help for me to shield my eyes from the UV rays of the sun. Can'…

Grace

John Bunyan was converted to Christ from a vile and profane life, and he wanted to tell everyone about it. When he started preaching in his little town of Bedford, England, he was arrested and imprisoned. This was in the days when only ministers for the Church of England could freely preach. Though Bunyan spent years in prison, his voice was never silenced. In fact, during his imprisonment he wrote his great classic  Pilgrim's Progress  and his autobiography, which he entitled  Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners . According to Bunyan, had it not been for "a miracle of precious grace," he would have perished by the stroke of eternal justice.1
The word "grace" means: God's Riches At Christ's Expense. It's God's favor freely bestowed on us in Christ. As we share the Gospel with others, grace should be among the first words on our lips--abounding grace, amazing grace.
How sweet the sound!

His whole gospel is a gospel of grace, wor…

Lion-Sized Boldness

In 1934, Adolf Hitler summoned German church leaders to his Berlin office to berate them for insufficiently supporting his programs. Pastor Martin Niemöller explained that he was concerned only for the welfare of the church and of the German people. Hitler snapped, "You confine yourself to the church. I'll take care of the German people." Niemöller replied, "You said that ‘I will take care of the German people.' But we too, as Christians and churchmen, have a responsibility toward the German people. That responsibility was entrusted to us by God, and neither you nor anyone in this world has the power to take it from us."

 It's easy to be intimidated today, for Christian values and convictions are the laughingstock of a godless society. But this is no time to be on the defensive. Christ overturned the moneychangers in the temple without flinching. If Jesus stood firm in His day and Niemöller in his, we can stand for Christ today--as bold as a lion.

Walking and Pleasing

By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; "and was not found, because God had translated him": for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. Hebrews 11:5
In today's world, the "centenarian club"--those living to age 100 or more--is a select group. Thousands of years ago, prior to the great flood, the goal was not living to 100 but living to 1,000! No one made it, but Methuselah came closest, dying at age 969 years (Genesis 5:27). Methuselah's father, Enoch, was a rarity in those days--he lived only 365 years. But there was a special reason why his lifespan on earth was cut short. 
Enoch's life on earth ended unexpectedly because God removed him from earth, presumably to heaven. We are not told why God took Enoch, but we are given two clues. First, Enoch "walked with God" (Genesis 5:22). Noah is the only other person in the Bible who "walked with God" (Genesis 6:9). Second, we are told that…
